Fulani herdsmen dare Ortom, destroy his farmhouse in Guma

Written By Idoma Television on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 | 12:48:00 AM


Suspected herdsmen, Monday, attacked Gbajimba town, all in Guma Local Government Area of Benue State, killing two persons, and destroying Governor Samuel Ortom’s farm house in fresh attacks in the area.


The latest attack came less than 24 hours after Yogbo, another community in the same local government area, also came under heavy attack by suspected herdsmen, which left six persons dead and several property and farmlands destroyed.

Confirming the latest attack at the State Police Command Headquarters, the Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni and Chairman of Guma Local Government Area, Mr. Anthony Shawon, said the herdsmen, who were backed by militant gangs, stormed the communities in the afternoon, yesterday.

“The herdsmen, backed by their militia, invaded Waku village this afternoon (yesterday) and killed two persons. They are also getting close to Gbajimba town, the local government headquarters and as I speak with you, they have attacked and sacked Governor Ortom’s farm house in Gbajimba.

“Our fear is that if we are not careful, they might overrun the local government headquarters the way they are going,” he said.
